As the nightmare known as Obamacare continues to slap everyone across the face with its blatant unconstitutional sections, even the Marxists (aka Democrats) are starting to balk:
18 Democratic senators revolt against Harry Reid on Obamacare tax (....
We're all aware of the indefensible decision by Chief Justice John Roberts where he hallucinated some mumbo-jumbo that the individual mandate is a tax.
Religious organizations have been fighting to stop implementation of certain provisions that violate their religious beliefs:
• Big ObamaCare setback: Little-noticed court ruling lets church chal... • Supreme Court Shocks Life Into Obamacare Challenge
But, what about employers and doctors who will be so negatively impacted by that monstrosity?
Let's take employers first.
Small Employers Weigh Impact of Providing Health Insurance - "By 2014, businesses with 50 or more full-time employees will be expected to offer as yet undefined affordable coverage, based on an employee's income. For employers that fail to offer such coverage, the law typically calls for a penalty of $2,000 a worker, excluding the first 30 employees."
Look at this U.S. Supreme Court decision:
RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD v. ALTON R. CO., 295 U.S. 330 (1935)
295 U.S. 330
RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD et al. v. ALTON R. CO. et al. No. 566.
Argued March 13, 14, 1935. Decided May 6, 1935.
Railroad Retirement Board, supra, 295 U.S., at 368:
"The catalogue of means and actions which might be imposed upon an employer in any business, tending to the satisfaction and comfort of his employees, seems endless. Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. Can it fairly be said that the power of Congress to regulate interstate commerce extends to the prescription of any or all of these things? Is it not apparent that they are really and essentially related solely to the social welfare of the worker, and therefore remote from any regulation of commerce as such? We think the answer is plain. These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power."
Congress has only the powers enumerated in Art. 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, which is why the Federal Department of Education, the SBA, the EPA, HHS and many other cabinets and agencies ARE unconstitutional. While I'm not a lawyer, I know how to read. I've also been blessed the past two decades with having good, dear friends who are constitutional attorneys with decades of experience that have taken their precious time to help me learn so much about the Constitution, unconstitutional laws and how to read court decisions. When reading court decisions, it's very important to read the footnotes and then go read what the justices (or federal or state judges) used in making their decision. And, yeah, it takes a lot of time to do this kind of research. Some days I spend doing nothing but reading decisions and chasing down the footnotes.
